Role description

We’re looking for engineering managers to help us build and manage Prezi’s engineering team and products - which have expanded in recent years from our presentation focused solution, Prezi Present, to also now include Prezi Design, a versatile graphics creation tool, and Prezi Video, a virtual presentation and collaboration solution that's changing how our customers work together in the hybrid office. We have current opportunities across our platform.

As a key member of the Prezi engineering team, you’ll be responsible for managing a team of engineers that participates on cross-functional product teams and operates under an agile delivery process. Success requires interest and ability to solve problems, collaborate, and continuously learn and lead a team of talented, ambitious engineers. Some typical responsibilities include:

  • Collaborate with your team's cross-functional leaders (Product Manager, Designer) to plan, strategise and resource on-going and future projects.
  • Help to translate company strategy and priorities into actionable goals, tasks and actions for the individual engineer  
  • Prioritise, delegate and supervise all engineers’ activities and deliverables. Help engineers work through challenges, deliver quality solutions, and achieve goals and milestones. 
  • Be a voice of users and user impact during technical discussions and deliberations
  • Hire new talent for the team and create personalised development programs and opportunities
  • Manage, support, and evaluate engineers’ performance including fostering a culture of direct and constructive feedback
  • Provide input in strategic technical decisions and solutions
  • Participate on working groups for platform-wide engineering initiatives
  • Ensure operational effectiveness around release management, quality assurance, and technical documentation
  • Communicate and collaborate frequently with other managers and stakeholders

Prezi is operating at the intersection of many exciting disruptions in how we learn/work, how we use visual communications technologies, and how we build an amazing, global organisation that can attract and inspire passionate and talented people to do their best and most impactful work.

 

If this sounds interesting and you have... 

  • 5+ years of experience as a software engineer, and 3+ years of software engineering leadership/management
  • Experience with key technologies and tools in use at Prezi such as Python, Django, React, Typescript, etc.
  • A solid grasp of agile software engineering practices, and enjoy leading cross-functional teams
  • The ability to foster high performance, motivation, and satisfaction by creating meaningful work, autonomy, and a results orientation for a team of engineers
  • The interest in working in an organisation that values:
    • Taking ownership and accountability for customer and business outcomes
    • Meeting opportunities and challenges with speed and teamwork
    • Respecting others by both communicating directly while also caring for each other and our communities 

then we would love to talk to you! 

 

Prezi has offices in Berlin, Budapest, Riga, and San Francisco, and we are a virtual first company. For these positions, we are looking for someone in the EU and UK time zones.

The best part: you’ll be part of an awesome team that highly appreciates visual communication, believes that together we are greater than the sum of our parts, and cares deeply about those around us.

At Prezi, we celebrate the diversity of our customers and our employees. We employ people from all backgrounds to build a product for everyone. We’re looking for people who can bring in their different perspectives and help us on our mission to reinvent how people share knowledge, tell stories, and inspire audiences to act.
